As long as Trump is sitting and grinning in the oval office, the lives of many Americans in harm’s way. While the crony and totally inept Putin puppet would like us to think that ISIS is out to get us, it’s actually evil and selfish billionaires like him. Case in point, the budget Trump is shoving down our throats with reckless disregard.
We all know that Trump’s uber-rich friendly budget seeks to kill off working Americans (IE, his supporters) by gutting Medicaid, but what’s lesser known are the cuts that he wishes to make to the State Department, including security.
–Enter Senator Lindsey Graham
Senator Lindsey Graham, or John McCain’s better half, makes no apologies for being a cheerleader for the defense industry and national security apparatus. He may have just accidentally admitted that Republican cuts to safety for ambassadors in 2012 most likely caused the attacks in Benghazi, Libya, which resulted in the death of American ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.
Graham, who voiced concern about Trump’s budget not for the cuts to much-needed programs but to the military state, essentially confirmed that it was Republicans harsh cuts for embassy security that led to the Benghazi attacks, not Hillary Clinton. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Tuesday that if “fully implemented,” Trump’s proposed cuts to State Department funding would lead to “a lot of Benghazi situations.”
“Twenty-nine percent cut to the State Department, I think, is very irresponsible given threats we face,” said Graham, who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee. “If fully implemented we’d have to retreat from the world or have a lot of Benghazi situations on our hands.”
Wait a second? Did Graham just admit that cutting funding for security at embassies could lead to attacks on embassies? You know, the very thing that his party did that led to the attacks in Benghazi. Nothing truly makes sense anymore.
